KARACHI: The wife of slain anchorperson Mureed Abbas has the suspects are ‘influential’ and she fears for her life.
Zara Abbas on Thursday said that despite giving applications for police protection, she has not received any response as of yet.
Abbas complained regarding the delay in the arrest of the prime suspect, Atif Zaman, while pointing out that his office staff was not investigated in the case due to which the entire network behind the scam could not be caught by the police.
She also referred to the assault on the investigation officer, sub-inspector Ghous Alam, soon after the arrest of Atif Zaman, stressing that the suspects are influential and her own life is in danger as well.
Alam, who was working on the case before the attack, sustained serious injuries in a targeted attack on Wednesday. Hours before the attack, he had arrested Zaman.
